UWC to Return on May 22; Virginia Commission Declares Mike Easton the Winner by Unanimous Decision

The Ultimate Warrior Challenge, which made waves as the pre-eminent Washington, DC-area fight show, has announced that it will be returning to the Patriot Center in Northern Virginia for UWC 8: "Judgment Day", which will feature local star Mike Easton taking on Ryan Diaz.  Consequently, the Virginia Boxing and Wrestling Commission has announced that Easton will be the winner by unanimous decision.  Said Commission spokesman David Amsterdam, "Look, we got a lot of grief over that Mike Easton/Chase Beebe debacle at the last UWC.  But there's a learning curve and I believe we've got the hang of this MMA judging thing.  We've come to the conclusion that if we release the official decisions for the May 22 event now, there won't be any nasty surprises on the night of the show."  Ultimate Warrior Challenge 8 will also see John Dodson taking on Jessie Riggleman, but the Commission was mum on that one as it will end via submission.
